I do things I’m passionate about.
One step at a time I’ve built a life I love, a creative outlet that keeps me excited to work, and a desire to share with others what I’ve learned along the way.
Can I have a notebook and a pencil, please?
I’ve been doodling since 1976 and designing for the craft industry since 1999. I design surface prints for scrapbook and fabric collections, as well as other graphic design projects. This daily creativity keeps me balanced and whole while I take care of family and home.
It’s never too late to try something new!
My latest passion is life coaching. After 30 years of struggling with my weight, not accepting my body, and always being in a war with food, I’ve finally found peace. The same process I used to lose 20 pounds and find that peace, is the process I use to help others through my one-on-one coaching. These mindfulness tools helped me with my compassion for others as well as myself.

One thing I love to do is travel! Hover over the photos and read about some of our favorite adventures!
Dad & Sister Trip 2017
Ever since my mom passed away in 2015, my dad has taken my sisters and me on an annual trip.
Abcoude, The Netherlands
This little town is about 15 minutes out of Amsterdam.
This picture was taken on my birthday in 2015. We took dreamy bike rides and stayed a couple of nights in this working windmill. I could live here!
Dad & Sister Trip 2016
This was our first Daddy-Daughter trip. We took a cruise, and this Dutch Caribbean island was my favorite because of the bright and charming buildings.
Traveling with Jared 2017
My husband travels a lot for speaking engagements and conferences. One of the perks is I get to tag along whenever I can make it work. Japan was a beautiful country with the kindest people.
Dome of the Rock – Late Fall 2016
Still fascinated with the culture, people, and history of this sacred place.
Riva Del Garda, Italy
Summer of 2016
This time Kate and I both snuck along to one of Jared’s conferences. Riva Del Garda was full of breathtaking views, a lake full of sailboats, and lots of European families spending their holidays together. We biked on the cobble-street roads and ate lots of gelato.
Old Jaffa, Israel
Late Fall 2016
I love seeing parts of the world that I’ve only read about in books…like the Bible.
Paris in the Fall
Family Trip 2015
We love going to Europe as a family and experiencing the culture and history together. Everyone always loves the gargoyles on Notre Dame Cathedral
